Distances on the map (F5 key)?


Recommended Posts

Actually regardless of the map scale (assuming its metric, not a nautical or aviation chart, ... i.e. a standard military topographical map) a square has 1 000m sides.


Its just that on a say 1:25 000 map the squares on the paper are bigger and conversely, on a 1:100 000 map the squares on the paper are smaller than those on a 1:50 000 map.
